I'm a fourth year PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Texas at Austin, advised by Peter Stone. My research is on curriculum learning -- the automated design of a sequence of tasks that enable autonomous agents to learn faster or better. I'm also a member of the UT Austin Villa Standard Platform League team, where I work primarily on the vision system.
I received my BS in computer science from California State University, Los Angeles, where I worked on using probabilistic automata (e.g. HMMs, etc.) for anomaly detection in computer agents with Professor Valentino Crespi. I also worked part time at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory on using multispectral and synthetic aperture radar data to detect natural disasters such as flooding, etc., and on telemetry processing.
